THE PHILOLOGICAL BOMBER.

From the World Briefing in today’s NY Times:

GEORGIA: DEVICE EXPLODES IN CAPITAL An explosive device went off in Tbilisi, the capital, news agencies reported, near a monument for soldiers who died in the 1990′s conflict with the separatist region of Abkhazia, over which tensions continue to run high. No one was injured. The Security Ministry said that a letter addressed to President Mikhail Saakashvili was found but that its contents were not yet known because it was composed in ancient Georgian.     Sophia Kishkovsky (NYT)

Comments

  1. Interesting. I met someone from Georgia a while ago who spoke ancient Arabic with her American husband because they met in that type of language course when they were studying in the Middle East.

  2. Supposedly, two of the professors at my college had met when one had small English and the other less Deutsch, and the courtship was conducted in Ancient Greek.

  3. Contemporary Bible: Harry Potter in ancient Greek
